You should carry a facemask with you when you intend to visit an airport. It is compulsory for people aged 12 and older to wear a facemask at all times whilst at a Tasmanian airport terminal or whilst on board a flight.

As Australia's only island state, access to Tasmania is by air and sea only.

Regular flights depart from Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane and fly direct to Hobart and Launceston.

Direct flights are available from the Gold Coast, Adelaide and Perth to Hobart, and from Adelaide to Launceston from 7 September 2021.

Direct flights are also available from Melbourne to Wynyard (Burnie), Devonport, King and Flinders Island.

Link Airways are also now operating direct flights from Canberra to Hobart.

Alternatively many visitors travel to Tasmania from Melbourne by sea on the Spirit of Tasmania. Departing from Melbourne and arriving in Devonport, this has the added benefit of letting you bring your own car and make the most of Tasmania's touring potential.
